Supernova Ia serve as excellent distance indicators beyond redshift one, yet, they also have a special role in the nearby Universe. I will discuss recent results on determining the Hubble constant and measure bulk flows using nearby SNe Ia from the Supernova Factory, a spectrophotometric survey of SNe Ia. In the second part of the talk will introduce the Zwicky Tansient Facility, an all-sky survey which will start taking data in 2017 and which will provide a new reference for searches of nearby SNe.
